ABU DHABI, 4th May, 2018 (WAM) — The Social Responsibility Department at the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, DCT Abu Dhabi, in association with Emirates Foundation for Youth Development, organised on Thursday an event entitled ‘Zayed Tribute Campaign’ to commemorate the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Founding Father and driving force of the nation.
The initiative is part of DCT Abu Dhabi’s initiatives marking the ‘Year of Zayed’.
The event was attended by a large number of DCT Abu Dhabi employees, who participated by writing down the lessons they had learnt from the vision, wisdom and leadership of the late Sheikh Zayed on cards, which were then hung on a special ‘Tribute Campaign Tree’.
The event celebrated the achievements of the UAE’s founder, honouring his distinguishing traits as a model of humility, humanity, generosity, courage, leadership, perseverance and will.
Zayed was the leader, father, brother and friend, who brought about prosperity, security and safety for his people, and thus he remains ‘alive’ in hearts of the nation.
The ‘Zayed Tribute Campaign’ calls on all members of the community to write down the values and lesson that Sheikh Zayed instilled in them and put them up on the campaign tree.
